Regular Workshop

Students are encouraged to design and fabricate their own original designs, or are welcome to learn and work on projects that have been previously offered in the studio. Creative designs often require creative fabrication solutions, and such solutions for individual projects will be demonstrated for the entire class to benefit.

In addition to individual projects, each class will devote some time at the beginning of class to demonstrations of techniques that may be unfamiliar. The images shown are projects completed in previous Intermediate sessions, and at the start of the session we will choose a new central project to learn new techniques and procedures to build on the skills we have. Such a project might involve exploring flexible connections for earrings, necklaces, and bracelets, interesting clasps mechanical systems, and various ways of setting stones both round and fancy shapes.
